State of fear( Visual )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the testimony of more than 16,000 people to the Peruvian Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the film begins with the rise of the Maoist leader Abimael Guzmán, leader of Sendero Luminoso, or Shining Path, and culminates in the collapse of President Alberto K. Fujimori's government in November 2000. Between those events lie an estimated 70,000 dead and untold numbers scarred for life. Within an atmosphere of desperation and chaos, Alberto Fujimori won the presidency, later dissolving Congress, maintaining his grip on power by continuing to raise the specter of terrorism, generating a phobic public response to a threat that, after 1992, was no longer there. Like many before him, Fujimori used real and invented threats to consolidate his power--enthusiastically supported by most of the populace--until his despotic, operatically corrupt regime finally imploded
The reckoning : the battle for the International Criminal Court( Visual )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rome Conference of 1998 was the culmination of 50 years of effort by the part of those seeking a humane world. Representatives from 140 governments and numerous NGOs were at the conference to establish the International Criminal Court (the ICC). The ICC came into being on July 1, 2002 ratifying the Rome Statutes. Though over 120 countries voted to create the International Criminal Court (ICC), some of the most powerful nations in the world -- China, Russia, and the United States -- refused to ratify the Rome Statutes. The U.S. claimed, among other items, that the ICC's authority to second-guess the actions taken and the results reached by participating states was an infringement on national sovereignty. Nevertheless, prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo issues arrest warrants for the rebel leaders of the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda, puts four Congolese warlords on trial in The Hague, charges the president of Sudan with genocide and war crimes in Darfur, challenges the UN Security Council to have him arrested, and shakes up the Colombian criminal justice system

Disruption explores a groundbreaking initiative that seeks to eradicate poverty by empowering women on government assistance programs in Colombia, Peru and Brazil to "save their way out of poverty." The film interweaves women's testimonies to the transformative power of financial education with the story of Fundación Capital, a group of dynamic activist-economists that believes when you invest in women you change society. As women share how economic empowerment led to their growth as local political figures, entrepreneurs, and peer-educators, we follow the team at Fundación Capital while they strive to bring their successful grassroots model to millions more women across the region, collaborating with governments and big banks in order to do so. In a time when many of the world's problems seem intractable, the stories of the characters in Disruption show us how society can be transformed for the better through community-led change
Dictator in the Dock( Visual )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in Spanish and English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dictator in the Dock short film series brings viewers into the courtroom as former dictator General Efraín Ríos Montt stands trial for genocide and crimes against humanity in Guatemala. This historic case marked the first time, anywhere in the world, that a former head of state was tried for genocide in a national court, in the country where the crimes were committed. It is also the first time in the history of South or North America, that the genocide of indigenous peoples was tried in a court of law, significantly in a country of the Americas with a majority indigenous population. As Francisco Soto, legal representative of the Maya victims, said in his concluding statement at the trial, "Justice is poised to play an important role in the historical memory of our country. For the first time in 500 years we are able to judge genocide." The symbolic and precedent setting nature of this trial for all indigenous peoples and all national justice systems cannot be overestimated. Skylight filmed the entire genocide trial of Ríos Montt from the day it started on March 19, 2013 to its conclusion on May 10, 2013, capturing the high-stakes drama of a reckoning with heinous crimes, an unveiling of impunity, and a nation's struggle to reconcile with a legacy of mass atrocities
